very supportive and comfortable...
By: scott2637
This boot seems to run true to size. It isn't a light boot but with composite toe it is lighter than most. Seems to be very well made and very supportive all around. With the removeable footbed it helps to 'air the boot out" after each work day. I haven't had to work in heavy rain as of yet so can't tell how the waterproof works as I have only had these Carolina boots a few weeks. The sole seems to be very strong and provides and solid grip and seems pretty comfortable working in them all day, always on my feet. I think for the price of these boots compared to some similar for much more money, I think this is a great deal for these work boots.

comfortable boot...
By: EnergyTech
Everything in the advertisement of this boot is true. It is 100% waterproof and a very comfortable work boot. Most of my work is outside and a good waterproof boot is important to me. This boot will keep you dry in all kinds of weather, working in snow, sleet, or pouring rain. This is not an insulated boot but I have never worn one or needed to, because I want a boot that I can wear all year round. I recommend a good pair of wool socks in the extremely cold weather. I have been wearing this boot for two years now and have no complaints. I have several different boots and I alternate then every 4 days. This boot is still waterproof and very comfortable. The composite toe area is roomy and the foot bead cushions your feet. I work many hours in this boot as much as 16 hrs a day and they are holding up very well. This is also fairly lightweight for an eight inch boot. The steel shank gives me the support I need when I am doing ladder work. The eight inch boot cradles you foot and ankle not only giving you excellent support, but gives you a great cushion around your entire foot. The tread is aggressive and gives you excellent traction on all different terrains. This is a great boot to own at a good price, I highly recommend this boot. I have been purchasing boots from this company for many years and have no complaints. They are true to their word about the 120% guarantee.

Great Boots...
By: themrgln
These boots were comfortable right out of the box . Great fit and waterproof as advertised .
I use these boots daily at work and I liked them enough to purchase a second pair for chores around the yard . These shoes have never disappointed me standing up to very tough conditions including snow mud and wet working conditions .

These boots were purchased for outdoor work, thus far I have worn them in hot weather and they are comfortable and are easy to move in. The only "con" is that they are a little on the heavy side. I would recommend them.

Best boots...
By: lisawenzel70
My husband continues to buy these boots every time he needs a new pair. We have a dairy farm and he is on his feet constantly. It is hard to go into a store and find a pair of 14EE. They provide great support and last a long time. In the winter months we purchase the insulated version of these boots. Caroline boots in general are the best work boots made. We have not found another company whose boots can withstand the daily norm in the dairy industry.

Very comfortable...
By: drgnsnpr66
Bought these for cold weather but have been breaking them in here in California. Still very comfortable all day. These boots are a little bulky but with the composite toe are rather light.Still cool after being on my feet all day. I would recommend this product for purchase and will be buying another pair for next year.

Very comfortable...
By: drgnsnpr66
Bought these in preparation for cold weather work, but even here in California 80's temps they are stay quite cool. They feel a little bulky but at the end of the day are still comfortable. For someone who works on his feet all day that is a plus.

All around...
By: Climbastian
This boot is nearly broken in out of the box. If you're looking for a heavy duty all around boot the 8528 is the one! It's water proof comes optional of steal toe, composite or none. Optional on insulation. Really don't need it unless you're working under 25 degree weather or at night in colder weather. Bottom line is for the price, these boots are right!

Nice fit...
By: Kric
These boots are well built and very comfortable.they hold up good to the weather at work and keep my feet dry.this is the first time I have ordered these boots and so far they have met my expectations.the leather seems to be top quality and the stitching is well done.I also have not had any problems with the insole which is a problem I have had with some other boots.

Warm. Comfortable. Durable...
By: chowellski
I am a railroad construction worker and these boots work very well for the job! They can take a beating compared to some other boots I have purchased. The insulation is great for the winter months and does not seem to effect my feet much during the hotter months of the year which is great!! The internal met guard is functional but does not hinder movement which is also a benefit. These boots are worth every cent!

brick s$$$ house strong...
By: Dylan
There is something about these that makes them different. it's like buying a pair of boots that someone actually gave a hoot about when being built. which is extremely hard to find these days. Unlike the big box stores.

Neutral so far....
By: Dr. Leaky
I must still be in the break in period. Not the most comfortable boot I've ever worn. Not unbearable, but could be better. Had them about 3 weeks now. Hoping the leather starts to loosen up a little. I also wish the waterproof went higher on the boot. Just past the top of the foot. That may be a problem because I am in and out of water filled trenches all the time. I guess we will see how long they last. That will be the acid test. Probably would not buy this style again.
